About the Project

  • Completion of the missing sidewalk section from #2036 N Utah St (west side) to the open-space/play area at Waverly Village/Gables Apartments on 20th Road N (north side). On street parking will be retained on both sides, except where prohibited for traffic engineering ordinance reasons.
  • 5′-0″ wide concrete sidewalk adjacent to a 5′-0″ utility (grass) strip for street tree installation.
  • All street tree installation work will be implemented at the end of construction, and as designed by the NC Landscape Architect.
  • Steep grade areas will have stone retaining walls of varying heights, as applicable.
  • Nub with disability access ramps along the frontage of Woodstock Park at N Vermont St, to reduce crossing distances to the north and south sides of 20th Road N.
  • Complete asphalt street reconstruction and pavement milling/paving.
  • LED Carlyle-style streetlights will replace existing DVP-owned Cobra streetlights.
  • The narrowed roadway will maintain two travel lanes, one in each direction, but will be considered a yield street, when any curb-to-curb widths are less than 30’.
  • Please note, the county has been working on a Streetlight Master Plan (SMP) that will determine what type of lighting will be used in the future. The current lighting technology will not be supported by the county moving forward. At this time, the lights that were intended to be a part of the 20th Road North project will not be included. There may be an opportunity to do lighting in the future but that will also be determined by the outcome of the SMP, which will need to be adopted by the County Board.
